The aim of this study was to investigate the levels and the spatial distribution of total Hg concentrations in soils from the urban area of Aveiro (Portugal) in order to assess the impact of industrial activities and identified Hg emission sources in these urban soils. For this purpose, soils were collected in 25 sampling points (at two depths) within the urban perimeter and in places considered representative of the main green areas of the city. A median concentration of 0.091 mg kg(-1) (dry… CONTINUE READING
